VIRUSCAN Version 8.4B89 Page 2 SYNOPSIS VIRUSCAN (SCAN) is a virus detection and identification program for the IBM PC and compatible computers. VIRUSCAN will search a PC for known computer viruses in memory, the boot sector, the partition table, and the files of a PC and its disks. VIRUSCAN can also detect the presence of unknown viruses. SCAN works by searching the system for instruction sequences unique to each computer virus, and then reporting their presence when found. This method works for viruses that VIRUSCAN recognizes, and for many unknown viruses as well. SCAN can also detect unknown viruses in files and boot sector by appending validation (CRC) codes to .COM and .EXE files and then checking the files against their codes for changes, warning that an infection may have occurred if the file has been modified in any way. An enhanced validation mode is available that will save and check information that can be used by CLEAN-UP to restore infected files, the partition table, or the boot sector of a disk in case of an infection by an unknown virus. SCAN can also check for new viruses from a user- supplied list of virus search strings. VIRUSCAN runs on any PC with 320Kb and DOS version 2.00 or above.
